  1. Default TEE and CABG
    Medical Coding Books
    I was wondering if anybody can tell me if I can bill

    93318 - Echocardiography, transesophageal (TEE) for monitoring purposes, including probe placement, real time 2-dimensional image acquisition and interpretation leading to ongoing (continuous) assessment of (dynamically changing) cardiac pumping function and to therapeutic measures on an immediate time basis

    along with 33533 - CABG, 1 arterial graft? Both were done by the same provider. Thank you.

  2. Default Did you ever find this out?
    Did you ever find out if the TEE for monitoring could be billed with the CABG?
